ISB News

Day 1 - Brisbane City Temple Corps

The first official day of the ISB Australian tour, commenced with the bands arrival at Brisbane International Airport. Following the reclaiming of luggage and ensuring all instruments had remained intact from the long haul (I believe the only casualty was a baritone), it was a real lift to be greeted by several members of the Brisbane City Temple Corps including Corps officer Major Dean Clarke and Bandmaster Barrie Gott.

RSA Remembered

On Saturday September 12th at 7pm the ISB will be sharing the Birmingham Conservatoire's Adrian Boult Hall with the International Staff Songsters. On this occasion it is to celebrate the life and music of Lieut-Colonel Dr. Ray Steadman-Allen OF

Summer Update

The ISB is currently in close season, but looking forward to a busy time after the summer break. Next season’s events will include a weekend at Brighton Congress Hall (September), and a visit to Sheffield Citadel (November).

The ISB at Boundless 2015

Quite often in life there are times when words just can't explain the sheer impact that something has on us. Boundless 150 was one of those events where it's near on impossible to describe to anyone who didn't attend how special this week in The Salvation Army's historic calendar was.

Ayr Community Church Weekend

Early Saturday morning flights from various parts of the UK got the ISB together ready for an afternoon outdoors concert. There was much interest and a lot of people standing around in the local shopping centre. However, we were reminded that the outdoor Scottish temperature, and rain, isn't the best preparation for a concert performance. The ISB was however, undeterred, and marched back to the Army hall.

2015 Recordings

The ISB have just completed three recording projects: Music of the 90’s (including ‘new’ recordings of ‘Shine as the light’, ‘Celestial Prospect, and ‘Isaiah 40’).

Regent Hall Weekend

The ISB at the 'Rink' was for many years an iconic occasion, so it was good to be back for a weekend in February. Some of the old elements were back, the Saturday concert, many ISB family members present, marching out into Oxford Street. As always a lot of new music was featured over the weekend and Regent Hall sections supported in an excellent way.
